Bloggy Friends, Please Tell Me It's Not So Bad!

I have to go in for a tetanus shot. I have a huge scratch on my arm that was full of dirt and it bled and I absolutely have to go. Well, really I should go in, just to be on the safe side. I've been putting it off since Monday, hoping there would be no need for it, but now I've been having weird, random headaches. I'm not a headachey person and I read that it's an early sign of tetanus (you know, when I was trying to get Dr. Google to assure me that I did not need a tetanus shot. He didn't. Bastard!) Realistically, my headaches are probably from being so worried about either having tetanus or getting a shot.

I should get the shot just for the peace of mind. It's been about 15 years since my last one. I'm such a wimp though! Seriously, I may very well pass out on the office floor when they pull out the needle. Sexy Nerd says he'll come in and hold my hand (but only after I insisted that he do! Bastard!) He also is going to take me to McDonalds for an ice cream afterward, which I also insisted on.

Ugh. I'm going to do it. I'm going to go in. I'll put on my brave face and just get it over and done with. Really though, I will be thinking scared thoughts the entire time.

Oh, I am such a WIMP! I know a shot is nothing compared to having tetanus, but I really, really don't want to do it! Yes, I work in a dental office and tell people every day that shots are no big deal, but I'm talking about tiny, easy shots in your mouth. Why can't they do the tetanus shot through my gum? That would be so much easier! At work, we also have a special code that we write on the charts of people like me. DQ. Drama Queen. I don't want to be a DQ, but it's just so darn scary!

Okay, I'm going to go. Maybe I'll wait one more day and see if the headaches go away. Oh, I really, really don't want a tetanus shot! No, no, no, no, no!!!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

*6/17/17 Update*  Since publishing my original review, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order through my link (THANK YOU!) you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already. What's a better compliment than plannin…

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Dream Home Dreaming

We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?


The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
